Running the following will remove leafpad along with all its configuration files and then install gedit: sudo apt-get purge leafpad && sudo apt-get install gedit You can use any text editor you like, gedit(or any other) won't have any issues regarding that.


You can also use search and replace and add a range to it: :.,15s/^/#/ To undo just: :.,15s/^#//

There is a continuum with 2 ends: Dedicated TODO management software (with autosave, devices sync, reminders, outlining, archiving of done/old tasks, etc.). Frequently stores your notes in some obscure database / format / cloud. ︙ Plain text files, manually managed by you, edited with any plain text editor. If you're comfortable with "I'll manage my own ...


Somehow no one's mentioned it yet. Try emacs. It's the perfect programmers editor. It does come built in with Fortran mode, which supports indentation, highlighting, etc. The editing shortcuts can take some getting used to if you are coming from most other editors (although this is not nearly as true as it is with vim). CUA mode can help here. I suggest ...


I'm going to suggest my favorite editor, vim. Plugin support means it can help with your Fortran code with a few additional plugins. Of course, vim has a steep learning curve, so if you prefer something simpler to learn to use, it's not a good option. Another suggestion is to look at the Fortran community's ideas on suitable editors: ...


Kate is quite nice. I've never used it for Fortran personally, but have seen it recommended. sudo apt-get install kate An example can be seen here:


GitHub's Atom (in a Lubuntu 14.04 VM): Like Sublime Text, currently not as polished, but open source. Developed in CoffeeScript and the like - ie, simply extensible, but a bit slower than Sublime. You can install it from WebUpd8's ppa: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/atom sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install atom It supports Fortran via ...


Geany Geany is a small and lightweight integrated development environment. It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a few dependencies from other packages. It is using only the GTK2 toolkit and therefore you need only the GTK2 runtime libraries to run Geany. As a long time Gedit user, I shifted to Geany last year as my ...


The correct answer, of course, is to use Sublime Text. You can download an ubuntu installer from that link or, at least on my machine (Ubuntu 14.10), you can install it through apt: sudo apt-get install sublime-text


maybe Geany is something for you. You can find it here: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Geany A screenshot can be found here:


This one is called JEditor. Its very light and has many modern editor functions. It is also actively updated by the developer. You can download the deb package from here.


Someone already mentioned emacs so I'm going to mention---wait for it---vim! Granted, to add these "special effects" to vim, the file needs to be in markdown format (with a matching .markdown or .md extension, I believe). But it is there by default. To install use: sudo apt-get install vim More information can be found at this question


If you want a text editor, there is no such a thing as bold. Plain text is plain text. The bold, italic, colored thing you see in a programming editor like gedit, geany, kate, etc. is syntactic highlight, added by the editor to facilitate the reading and writing of programs or whatever --- it is not stored with the text. Now, you can leverage this to see ...


Emacs is an easily customizable text editor which is widely used and probably has more features then any other open source text editor out there. To install, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below: sudo apt-get install emacs Once you highlight what you want to make bold, then:


If you want to look at source code with rich formatting, then Geany or Kate is your best choice. However, it seems that you basically want a Rich Text Editor. In this case you should go for Abiword or Calligra Words. Abiword is much like WordPad. Install Abiword: sudo apt-get install abiword


I sincerely hope for you that that was a USB stick because what you just did is extremely dangerous! As this is a block device, you cannot "just" ghex this on a multi-user multi-tasking OS. It's just not possible, even when the disk is unmounted and not any more after the disk has been ejected... Anyway, If you really, really want to have a more or less ...
